Subject: Unusual car ad

This ad for the Rambler American is rather unusual...and unusually boring...but the Rambler American was a pretty good little car; small, inexpensive, utilitarian...nothing fancy... A friend's lasted a long time with little service and few problems, that is until a hole rusted through on the floor of the driver's side.

Interesting, driving a car along and being able to see the road going by...through a hole in the floor...

A fascinating, if odd and lengthy, commercial. Perhaps more a sales promo for use by dealers? Four stars for its uniqueness, but subtract one for it being boring, which gives a three star rating. (By the way, I believe the short, heavy bald man is actor J. Edward McKinley.)
